Support for Sustainable Waterloo

City council agreed unanimously to become a pledging partner for Sustainable Waterloo under their Regional Carbon Initiative at the Oct. 19 meeting.

According to Mike Morrice, executive director of Sustainable Waterloo, the city will be evaluated for its carbon emissions and be provided with realistic targets to lower emissions.

Furthermore, Sustainable Waterloo will provide the city with educational forums, technical workshops and a directory of Waterloo Region Green House Gas (GHG) Services Professionals.

The city will fund the $5,000 initiative with surplus funds from the Non-Essential Pesticide Reduction Social Marketing Campaign project.
